We're excited to share that our President, Jeff Lilley, was featured on Rise Seattle's "Best of Season 1" podcast! Earlier last year he had the opportunity to speak with Tyler and Phil, and was able to discuss "relationships vs. resources and the rise in drug use in the city" in Episode 7.
In their latest podcast, Tyler and Phil "recap Jeff’s comments and encourage our fans to go back and really 'listen to learn' with this episode."
We're honored to have our President featured, and thankful for the opportunity to share about those in greatest need!

Meet John Platt. John is a Seattle restauranteur, dear friend and major contributor to our Hope Place BAM's. He co-founded St Clouds and the Neighborhood Cooking Foundation's Homeless Cooking Project, where he alongside volunteers have been cooking up incredible food for our homeless brothers and sisters in Seattle for over 16 years!
We were incredibly blessed when the Homeless Cooking Project became a BAM partner and began cooking twice a month to serve our ladies at Hope Place! John will be dearly missed, and we are grateful that the partnership he created with the Neighborhood Cooking Foundation's Homeless Cooking Project will continue even after he departs from the Emerald City!
Thank you, John, for your service, your heart and for all that you have done for our guests here at the Mission and those in greatest need!

This week Joy Egbegimba and Kela Hall, two business women from Seattle, visited Hope Place to give Nuciano designer handbags to three of our May graduates. Egbegimba designs and markets the handbags, made of the highest quality leather and specifically designed to make women feel beautiful. She is a member of KDHall Foundation: The Movement, a business group for women that was founded by Hall.
Our three graduates were overwhelmed by the handbags—something many women take for granted, but that for them was a symbol of worth. As one of the graduates said, she is used to second-hand clothes and always getting the left-overs in life. She would never consider herself worthy of something brand new. To have someone else give her a gift that has never been used and is of such high quality was truly a confidence booster. In addition to the handbags, each woman was also given a year-long membership in K.D. Hall Foundation. This will give them opportunities to network, attend classes, and learn from the women in Seattle’s business community!
To all of our Mission family who gave so generously yesterday, we want to give you a BIG thank you! So many of you donated to further your impact in the community... and you gave BIG!
With matching grants, you helped us raise $197,047 for Seattle's homeless and hungry. We are so thankful for each and every #GiveBIG gift that helped provide more meals, shelter and life-changing care!
See your impact! Join us for this month's graduation celebration!
We have a special #GiveBIG announcement for all of our Mission supporters who are also BECU members!
